Thanks Peter!

The battle for first spot is certainly not a walk-over for Rybka! Deep Sjeng would be the underdog I think now because it already played Rybka. But in case of a tiebreak with Rybka, Rybka because of the result against Sjeng would win I suppose. I like these experiments of the Rybka team, maybe next time they come with a quantum computer with hyperlinked nodes in a virtual universe. Please don't mind my silly comments, I think it is the weather or something :P Spring in the air and I can't seem to make any serious posts.

Keep up the good job!

Eelco

Hi Eduard

Fruit is private engine, and is very unlikely to be released, either for free or commercial use.

Hello Eduard,

Good to see you post here! I really would not know, if there is any chance that one of these versions of Fruit will ever be anything other than a private version. I only know that only Ryan Benitez is the main author at the moment and Fabien is doing other things than computer chess. I do hope there is still some active development of Fruit! Then maybe Fabien would get interested again, some of the new bitboard stuff in recent Fruits I think was developed by Fabien and he had his own project Chess64 that we do not know much about.

Groeten,
Eelco
